My garden this year has a jalapeno plant that’s been an absolute champion when it comes to producing peppers. It’s provided for countless loaves of bread, bowls of guac, marinades, and omelettes. Despite having so many uses, I still found myself struggling to keep up with the output, so I decided it was time to

The title is a bit of a troublesome mouthful, but the dish itself is one you’re not going to be able to get enough of. Summer is the start of squash season, and what better way to make an easy, hearty, flavorful soup than to use the local fresh produce at the farmer’s market? I

Last week, we learned how to make garlic dill pickles. This week, we’re trying something a little different. I love pickles, and I always have, but I’ve never liked sweet pickles. Unfortunately, I realized that I’d run out of dill while I was in the middle of mixing brine for the cucumbers I’d already sliced

The last time I made pickles was when I was a kid. I remember very little of it other than it being a fun experiment. Now that more of us have been spending more time at home (and AE has already covered sourdough territory), there’s no better time than the present to experiment with canning

My kitchen has a whole cupboard dedicated to tea and vessels from which to drink it. Sometimes, I get a box of something thinking it’s going to be the best thing ever, but then I make a cup and never want to see it ever again. Mostly, that happens with spice teas. You’d think that

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I have a lot of currants. Possibly too many. I’ve been at a loss for what to do with them, but I decided to get adventurous and figure out how to best bake them while fresh (I’ve got recipes for dried ones, like my Rosewater Currant Cakes but

It’s summertime again, and that means my friend’s mom has currant bushes that are overflowing with fruit. This year, she taught me how to juice them using a pressure cooker, but then I was stuck with far more currant juice than I knew what to do with. I still had jelly from last year, as

My friend Gauri and I were talking the other day and, as usual, we got on the subject of food. We haven’t been able to see one another in about a year, so we took advantage of technology and had ourselves a little long-distance lunch date via video chat. I happened to have the ingredients
